George Clooney broke from his press tour last night to take his girlfriend Stacy Keibler out on the town. The couple grabbed dinner at Dan Tana in La, and George gentlemanly held the door for Stacy as they headed out to their car afterward. George had a rare night off from talking up his Oscar-nominated movie The Descendants. He recently joined director Alexander Payne for a New York Times "TimesTalks," and also did a fun spot for CBS. George helped bring back CBS News's "Person to Person" segment, a spot created by the subject of George's film Good Night and Good Luck, Edward R. Murrow. George showed off his La home and revealed he's doing a post-New Year's cleanse. View Slideshow › »

Can we all agree that no new newsmagazine could do more than a 1 demo rating no matter how big the talent and recognizable the title and stop trying? Last night, CBS’ revival of Person To Person launched with a 1.1/3 at 8 Pm. At 9 Pm, NBC’s Rock Center With Brian Williams premiered in its new time slot with the same 1.1/3. The two tied as the lowest-rated programs of the night. Person To Person also pushed down Criminal Minds (3.4/9, down 8% from two weeks ago). At 10 Pm, CSI (2.7/7) was down 22% from its last original two weeks ago, which featured the departure of co-star Marg Helgenberger and hit season highs. At NBC, Rock Center‘s lead-out, Law & Order: Svu (2.2/6), with guest stars Miranda Lambert and Harry Connick Jr (neither singing), was actually up, jumping 22% from its last original three weeks ago. But at 8 Pm, comedies Whitney (1.5/4), and Are Your There, Chelsea? (1.5/4), which reversed their downward ratings trend last week, »

NBC tried moving Rock Center with Brian Williams to a new time period but, alas, the result was the same.
The news magazine show shifted from Mondays at 10 p.m. to Wednesdays at 9 p.m. to make room for NBC’s new musical Smash. Rock Center delivered 5.3 million viewers and its usual 1.1 rating in the adult demo. The time period recently housed Harry’s Law (and averaged the same rating). NBC also aired Whitney (4.1 million, 1.5) and Chelsea (3.7 million, 1.5), both down 12 percent. At 10 p.m., L&O: Svu (6.7 million, 2.2) improved heroically on its Rock Center lead-in.

CBS is premiering Person to Person, a brand new show that takes viewers into the homes of celebrities. In the first episode, they pay a visit to George Clooney's 7,000 square foot Californian home, where he shared the contents of his fridge.
"There's a lady that makes salads for me and some sort of a juice thing," Clooney said. "One of my New Year's resolutions was to eat better and to do one of those cleanses. Really glad I did that."
David Strathairn, as newsman Murrow, 'interviewed' pianist Liberace for the programme as part of Clooney's film Good Night, And Good Luck and the movie star is thrilled the series has been brought back by CBS bosses.
In the show, which airs in America on Wednesday, the Oscar nominee also talked about his 2012 health kick with the hosts as he showed off the contents of his refrigerator.
He explained, "There's some lady that makes salads for me and I eat salads and some sort of juice thing because one of my New Year's Eve resolutions was to eat better and to sort of do one of these cleanses." »
The show may come from CBS News, and recall the legacy of Edward R. Murrow, but it looks like there’s a lot of fluff ahead for the first Person To Person with co-hosts Lara Logan and Charlie Rose. Next week’s special will go inside the homes of George Clooney, Jon Bon Jovi, and Warren Buffett. Here’s the release: CBS News’ iconic Person To Person will air as a television special on Wednesday, Feb. 8 (8:00 Pm, Et/Pt). Meet today’s legends and newsmakers, not in public, but in private – inside their homes, inside their lives. George Clooney gives Logan and Rose a tour of his Los Angeles home, while Warren Buffett opens the door to his Omaha office, and Jon Bon Jovi welcomes Person To Person to his magnificent home on the Navesink River in New Jersey, including his private recording studio.

See how one of the world's top film stars lives - away from the spotlight. George Clooney has opened up his Los Angeles home to CBS News, showing off his kitchen (where he orders dinner), screening room and bar, for a revival of the classic celebrities-at-home program Person to Person, made famous in the 1950s by Edward R. Murrow. Along with his palatial digs, the Oscar winner, 50, also introduces viewers to a very special friend - his roommate Einstein, a black cocker spaniel whom he rescued in 2010. "The dog came in and threw himself at me," Clooney recalls, "and I »

It’s been almost a year since CBS News correspondent Lara Logan was horrifically beaten and sexually assaulted by a group of men in Egypt. The tragic attack took place while Logan and her CBS crew were in Cairo’s Tahrir Square to cover the fall of Hosni Mubarek’s dictatorship. But the unimaginable horrors that happened to Logan (she recalled to 60 Minutes the hell she endured on that February night) haven’t stopped her. Not from being a journalist or a Mom or a survivor.
The New York Daily News spoke with Logan, who will return to 60 Minutes and »

" ... And whatever the hell that thing on CBS is called."
So says Jeff Goldblum's television-executive character about the morning show from the "eye network" in the 2010 movie comedy "Morning Glory," but a new bid to grab A.M. audiences begins Monday (Jan. 9) with "CBS This Morning." Held over from "The Early Show," Erica Hill will be joined by fellow anchors Charlie Rose and Gayle King, and one CBS News veteran is very ready for the change.
"I think there's such an excitement about it," producer Susan Zirinsky tells Zap2it, "because it is who we are at our core. This speaks to our DNA." Both the executive producer of "48 Hours Mystery" and an update of the classic interview series "Person to Person" that premieres Wednesday, Feb. 8, Zirinsky worked on "CBS Morning News" earlier in a diverse career with the network that dates back some 40 years.
